High Net Divorce

A high net worth individual is defined as a natural person who has an individual net worth, or joint net worth with their spouse, that exceeds $1 million. For those who meet this financial criterion, their divorce proceedings would be considered a high net worth divorce. However, the term itself does not have any statutory or judicial meaning within the context of family law and is used informally regarding divorces involving wealthier individuals.
Most divorce attorneys in North Carolina do not have the experience necessary in dealing with the common aspects of high net divorces, such as prenuptial agreements, large estates, global properties, and money on future incomes. The lawyers at Capital to Coast Law NC Group have the knowledge and experience in high net divorces and have handled numerous cases of this nature.

In the event that you and your spouse cannot avoid litigation, there are some steps you can take in order to better prepare yourself for the divorce proceedings; most of which consist of you organizing your estate’s financial information so it can be properly reviewed by your attorney and/or accountant.

First, you should identify non-marital assets.

These are generally classified as assets acquired before the marriage, and assets that were received as gifts or inherited by the individual. These are considered to be separate from the marital estate. Next, you will need to identify all the assets and liabilities that constitute the marital estate, as these will form the basis for all future proceedings for the distribution of the marital estate. Once you have gathered all the relevant financial information, you will need to consult a qualified attorney who can review your information and provide the necessary expertise to develop your legal strategy.

When we needed an attorney recently we contacted Kellie Gonzalez and could not have been more pleased with our interactions with her and the outcome she obtained for us.

From the very beginning, she was professional, understanding, and took great care to explain the legal process to us. She went far beyond what one would normally expect from an attorney and in doing so successfully achieved the goal we hoped for. We highly recommend Kellie Gonzalez for any occasion that calls for an attorney. – K, Family Law Client

I am writing to thank all of you, for assisting with the completion of the will and other key documents.

I appreciated the time, effort, patience, and the many questions answered which were all associated with this process. It is finally “done” and I can now relax and feel that my kids will be appropriately protected. Thanks again for your dedication, attention and positive experience! I’ll be sure to refer others to your office!! – D, Estate Planning Client

They were wonderful. Very efficient and great communicators.

I was very nervous about this process and they made it very simple and took all of the guesswork out of it. I will definitely use them again. – C, Will Preparation Client

Received a speeding ticket while passing through NC.

Was required to personally show in court or hire legal representation. Living 10 hours away, I opted for the latter. Great decision, but hiring them to represent me was a better one. They resolved my case much better than I could have ever hoped. Courteous, professional and obviously capable. – G, Out of State Traffic Violation Client

We used Kellie as our real estate attorney when purchasing a home.

Kellie and her staff walked us through the entire process from start to finish and promptly answered all our questions or concerns! I would highly recommend using her team to anyone looking for a real estate attorney! – M, Real Estate Closing Client
